Kleenex Box Cover

Hi friends,
I have a crafty project for ya today. I've been wanting to make a cover for the Kleenex box in my classroom for a loooong time! I finally made one, quick & easy & with the help of my fave
Here it is:
 I thought this school subject paper (from Mike's) was perfect for the box cover.

Here's a peek of it from the top:

Can you see how the "Spanish" is popped up? *Ü*
 This was one of the awesome projects from the Back to the Books svg collection. It covers a standard size rectangular tissue box.

We always need tissues in the classroom. What a nice gift this would be to send along to your child's teacher along with a few refills *Ü* That will definitely get you closer to that A+!

That's it for now.

PI Girls

Hi ya friends!
I have been crazy busy, but finally had a whole weekend to spend in Studio K!
Today, I have a couple of cards to share.
Here's the first:
 I haven't colored in forever, so I was really struggling to color this PI. I thought about putting her in the round file (trash can) several times, but just couldn't :( I knew I hadn't colored in a while & was really rusty, but this was ridiculously horrible! Then I realized what it could be... my E00 marker was dry!  Luckily, I had the refill & proceeded to refill my marker. Once it was ready to go, I tried to fix her a bit.  That did help some & kept her out of the round file.

Here are the innies:
 I took the other half of the circle to bring the balloon element to the inside. I used twine for string.

Now on to something a bit more spooky!
 What a difference a wet marker makes! Although I am still totally rusty, I felt much happier with her skin. I couldn't wait to ink her up! I added yellow Spica glitter pen to the jack-o-lantern face on her shirt. But she's not just for Halloween. Her little shirt is blank & you stamp the face on it. The little grave stone is from the Halloween charms Dienamics. The fence is a MS punch. The moon was made from yellow vellum. This card came together speedy quick!

I used this week's MFT sketch for both cards:

 Since it's been a while, I think I'll play along in the following challenges:
 Corrosive Challenges: Cute & Creepy
613 Avenue Create: Make your own challenge: At least 1-3 from every column  
Addicted to stamps: Create a Scene
A.R.T. Card Challenges: Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz: Decorate the inside of the card
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes

I'm so happy to have had a couple of lovely crafternoons *Ü* and that it's Pumpkin Spice Latte time at Starbucks!!! And... McDonald's has their version of PSL too & it's yummy as well.

Life is Good, friends *Ü*
Until next time...
Thanks for popping by!

back (pack) to school

Hi friends,
I have a new version of that infamous back pack to share today.
Here it is:
 From the side:

 It's so super quick & easy to whip together! It's another file from the Back to the Books collection from

Here's how it compares to the one I designed on my GYPSY.

 The svg back pack can be made with 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock. It's not as tall as mine but it's almost as wide so it can hold quite a bit of treats for the teacher. Did I mention how easy-peasy it was to assemble? Yup, it's one you can easily create multiples of.

That's it for today!
Thanks so much for popping in *Ü*

Let's Converse

Hi friends,
Today, I'm sharing a little something I made for my T.A. He was my student for 2 years, and now he's graduated to being my TA! *Ü* He is very athletic & an awesome kiddo all around. Not to mention, he's a great T.A! Since we're hitting one month into the new school year, I wanted to make a little something to show him how much I appreciate all he does to help me in the classroom.
Here it is:
 This little Converse high-top shoe is all made out of paper. It's another great svg project from my fave It is from the Back to the Books kit. I used the MFT all-star stamp set to add the details.

Here's an aerial shot:
 I will fill it with some of his favorite treats *Ü*

I even added some embossing detail to the sole:
 Hope he likes it! This would also be cute for a PE teacher, or a coach, don't ya think?

Thanks so much for peeking today!

Thank You, Teacher

Hi ya friends,
Long time no see!  I'm back today to share a few things I had a chance to work on recently.
It's back to school time for lots of peeps, including my little one. I think there's something right about starting school after Labor Day, maybe I'm a creature of habit. Anyhoo, I thought this week I would share some school-inspired projects to get you in the school spirit!

Today, I have a teacher card to share:
 I used one of my fave teacher images: MFT's A la Modes~ An Apple for Teacher. I decided I would use some honeycomb paper to pop-up the apple & make it fun *Ü*

I think any apple teacher card should be accompanied by an apple treat box you can fill with loads of goodies!
 The apple box is an svg file from my FAVE svg site~ It's from Miss Baker's Classroom.
I was going to put some Caramel Apple Sugar Babies I bought, but I don't think the teacher wants only three Sugar Babies :( ooops! They were pretty yummy though!

Here's a peek of the simple innies:
 I used this week's MFT sketch:

I have one more card I made last week, but didn't get a chance to post it:
 I used MFT's At the Movies stamp & DIenamics set. I think I've used this one more than any other MFT set I own (and I have lots!) I luv, luv, luv it!

Here's a peek of the innies:
 It's going to a friend who loves going to the movies. I think she'll like it *Ü*

and here's last week's sketch:
Thanks so much for peeking today!
I'll be back with more school goodies...
